Angie Schmitt explains changes to this year's "Parking Madness" tournament over at Streetsblog USA:

This year, the sixth year of the tournament, we want to mix things up a little, put a happy spin on things. This year’s competition will feature former parking craters that are now awesome city spaces.

We’re looking for entries for Most Improved Parking Crater! The above aerial showing downtown Denver in the 1970s vs. today is a great example of the kind of improvements cities can make with the right mix of attention, policy and investment.

The tournament is well underway, but there's still voting left to do. Catch up on the voting that has transpired so far on the Streetsblog USA feed that tracks the tournament.
